    It's finally here! After years of being asked we're releasing our envision of the Minecraft Classic: BedWars. Hive BedWars has features unseen elsewhere, whilst keeping the intense tactical gameplay BedWars is known for!

    The objective is simple: protect your bed and destroy the others. You can respawn infinitely whilst your bed is alive, but once your bed is destroyed you lose the ability to respawn. The last team remaining wins. How you go about this, is up to you. Will you rush or will you play the long, tactical game?

    You can find the "Official Game Page" and Leaderboards, here.

    We're super proud of the design of this game. There's a lot to this game but we'll highlight some of the core mechanics and things we're most proud of.

    Team Summoner


    The Team Summoner is the core of the game. By default, it spawns only Iron Ingots. Use your "Upgrade Merchant" to upgrade the Summoner. You can upgrade your Summoner to spawn new currencies or spawn the current currencies faster.


    Use the summoned currencies to buy items from the Item Merchant, and other fancy things such as team upgrades and base defenses.

    World Summoners

    Just like your base, the world has Summoners. These summoners only spawn one type of currency at a fixed rate. It's important to use these Summoners to get high-risk currencies such as Emeralds, which allow you to buy better gear and incredible bed defenses such as Obsidian blocks.

    Each Summoner has a timeline above so you know when it will next be dropping a shiny gift.

    The Specialist and The Enchanter

    In the center of each map, you will find some very special merchants. The Specialist sells items that can really change the game, from personal wolves all the way to ender pearls. You must check him out and see all that he has to offer. Though, I think we can all agree the Iron Golem is an interesting challenge...

    [​IMG]

    The Enchanter is a fully custom enchanting system. When you talk to the Enchanter he will ask you which item you would like to enchant. Then, a list of enchants will be offered to you at different prices. Select the Enchant and... walla... you have an Enchanted item. (Warning: Enchanting an item will remove all previous enchants. This is to balance gameplay.)

    Traps


    Traps are pressure plates that perform special actions when an enemy steps on them. Use them to help upgrade your defenses. Traps currently available are:
    • Sticky Trap
      • Locks a player inside a cobweb when stepped on.
    • TNT Traps
      • Spawns primed-TNT when stepped on.
    • Spring Trap
      • Throws a player into the air when stepped on.
    Your team may only have 5 traps active at any given point.

    Island/Team Upgrades

    As well as items, you can also buy passive upgrades. These are upgrades that just... work. Base Defense Upgrades last 5 minutes at a time, so remember to purchase them again when they run out. Team Upgrades last the entire length of the game.

    Base Defense Upgrades
    • Radar Defense
      • Plays a beep to you when an enemy is detected nearby
    • Blindness Defense
      • Blinds enemies when they step onto your Island
    • Slowness Defense
      • Slows enemies when they step onto your Island
    Team Upgrades
    • Speed Upgrade
      • Gives everyone on the team a permanent speed boost
    • Roll The Dice
      • When any team member dies, they will keep up to 30% of their inventory (picked at random)
    As you can see, some of these upgrades are very helpful. Especially "Roll The Dice".

    There's much more to this game and we hope you love it as much as we loved making it. We're constantly monitoring and improving the game and have some tasty updates to our other titles shortly. We're hoping to have some BedWars cosmetics released in the near, too.

    All the maps were done by Nectar in a very short amount of time and I think we can all agree that they are awesome. We have many more coming and we'll definitely be looking for some high-quality community submissions soon.

    Oh boy oh boy,
